China warns of countermeasures to US rules against Chinese journalists

China warned the US with countermeasures in response to a US decision to tighten visa terms for Chinese journalists. The US last week issued a new rule limiting visas for Chinese reporters to a 90-day period, with the option for extension. Such visas are typically open-ended and do not need to be extended. ’We require the US to immediately correct its mistake’, a foreign ministry spokesman said.

Not wishing to throw fuel on the fire but does anyone care what new restrictions a country introduces when it already controls its own and foreign press with an iron rod and lies as a matter of preference rather than in extremis.

Journalists? More like state media agents who likely are intelligence assets, just like Chinese student associations members and Confucius Institute employees have proven to be from the US to Australia as they've conducted espionage and pressured both public universities and private businesses to bend to the demands of the CCP. No, I say CCP agents should be treated as spies not given visas.

China: 'We suppress all critical media and require the foreign journos to register with Central Command' Also China: 'we must have the ability to perform as a free press outside our own borders' 🙃

Chinese Journalists is an oxymoron.

They also murder their journalists and scientists not down with CCP, doesn't that seem like more harsh treatment than a shortened visa for their spies?
